for me the ride is a bit wobbly but they are ok.
If it's made in SA then I wouldn't touch it!
I know I'd biaised but the Ribtec ride is a strange beast but once mastered can be a very rewarding ride
. I believe the reverse scallope chines on the hull cause this.
In rough seas its rides pretty well and does slam. Landing is very smooth too.
In calm stuff mine is a little stern heavy with the back pod full of people but once its going it flies. Trim it out all the way and it's like flying a plane not boating. I wouldn't decribe it as wobbly though.
Have a look here
to see it in action.
About 1/2 way through you can see it ridding quite nicely over the chop.
